Manic Focus
Manic Focus
Manic Focus is the musical conception of John "JmaC" McCarten, a music producer from the Twin Cities. Combining original beats with vocal samples from all types of genres, Manic Focus is a musical experience like none other. From fast paced, melodic grooves to down tempo dub, Manic Focus is a fresh, new electronic sound that energizes the party and excites the crowd.
With a classically trained ear and over a decade of self-taught, beat making experience, Manic Focus tracks bang with the best of them with complex, original melodies and pulsating bass lines. Manic Focus spans a wide range of genres, and appeals to an incredibly wide audience, getting people from a variety of backgrounds to groove to one rhythm. The vocal samples compliment one another to create a single, cohesive message unique from any other producer, DJ, or mash-up artist.
